Roman House, City of London
Fountaineers were approached by Ardmore construction to design and build a water feature at the prestigious Roman House development in the City of London.
The brief was to create a reflective pool in the entrance way to the development to add to the luxury feel of the apartments. The project quickly moved on with the client approving the design from the 3D model generated in our design office using the latest design software.
Installation of the water feature started in September with Fountaineers working closely with Ardmore’s on site team to ensure that the project stayed on track.
By the end of October all of the operating equipment had been installed and the water feature was tested, stone cladding was then added to the outside of the feature to match the materials used in the main building construction.
Finally, in November the final commissioning took place and the water feature came to life.
Technical Engineer Oliver Mitchell of Fountaineers said:
“This was a uniquely challenging project; due to the speed that construction was progressing we had to come up with innovative ways to fit in with the principle contractor’s time frame. By close liaison between our design and installation team we managed to keep this project moving forward and have created a stunning water feature in the process.”
Managing Director Colin Knight also added:
“At Fountaineers there is nothing we like better than building water features and this latest addition to our portfolio shows the high quality of work that we pride ourselves on.”
